This song is not in the public domain
No sound recordings in the United States (with the exception of Edison records) are in the public domain because they are covered by the common law of the state the contract for the recording was signed in.
The reason Edison records are in the public domain is only because the Edison family deemed them so and no other reason.
That goes for the other songs posted by PublicDomain4U by a variety of artists.
The music/lyrics of this song are also currently protected by not one but FIVE copyrights.
I wish someone could/would prove me wrong as I'd like to use the songs commercially. So if you can, please do.
